Our Lady of Lebanon, Jounieh
(4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Looking out over the bay of Jounieh toward Beirut, Our Lady of Lebanon attracts Christian and Muslim pilgrims from around the world. Standing atop a majestic spiral staircase/stone base, the 8 m (26.2 ft) bronze statue of the Virgin Mary encloses a monumental 100 seat-shrine located underneath. Ride the cable car to the top of the hill, located 650 m (2132.5 ft) above sea level, then climb the sloping 19th-century stairway to the base of the statue, where a panoramic view of the city rewards your efforts. Make Our Lady of Lebanon a centerpiece of your Jounieh vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Jounieh trip generator.

  • Nice site with good views. It is quite a hike to the top though so don't forget to bring water!
  • The statue is very cool to visit. Has an excellent view of the Mediterranean. The church is not very impressive.
  • Amazing place to visit. Dont miss it.
  • Stunning views over Central Lebanon and a very calm atmosphere around the shrine and churches. Definitely a must-see for all tourists, even if you're not religious.
  • 👍🏻 Wonderfull panoramic view 😍
